The idea of Sawdust & Embers was born back in 2015. We have been designing, building, refinishing, and creating furniture and items for the home for friends and family. We decided we wanted to offer our design services to others.
So in 2016, we founded Sawdust & Embers and immediately began work on developing our product lines. Our biggest goal from the start was to use the best ingredients, that meant lots of research and testing of various waxes. We ended up finding a sustainable coconut wax which is all natural, it's extremely clean burning and holds a significant amount of fragrance. We then put a considerable focus on developing fragrances that, inspired by our many travels or materials we frequently use in our workshop. All of our scents are phthalate-free, and our wicks are made from native, sappy fruit trees and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified mills and manufactured with pride (and great skill) in the USA.
All candles are poured by hand into glass jars or metal tins and finished off with our custom designed packaging. All candles are designed, poured, and packaged in Garland, TX.
